Again...rookies rarely grade well in pass coverage and especially with a horse crap front 7, that ain't helping. PFF is not the end all be all for player eval.This has been posted numerous times. He graded out poorly in pass coverage.
How their top pick fared: Kyle Dugger (No. 37 overall) came into the league facing a steep learning curve out of Division II Lenoir-Rhyne, but the safety held up in his first year at the NFL level against the run. His 73.6 run-defense grade placed him 17th among all safeties this season. He faltered in coverage, though, with a 55.4 grade in that facet (69th of 91). That was the leading factor in him generating negative PFF WAR.
